Agreed! Now that there are many new ACPI only laptops and desktops
on the market, we need a GENERIC_ACPI config, or instead we need to
enable all of the ACPI & ioapic related options should be enabled
in both GENERIC and GENERIC_LAPTOP.
Hopefully this and any type of working ACPI sleep/suspend will be
added to NetBSD before version 2.0 is offically released.
